Beautiful Blooms and Plants of Malaysia

5th April, 2015 | Article By Lesley Tan

Everyone loves to see beautiful flowers, whether in photos, or artwork, or in your garden. Here in Malaysia we have such a wonderful array of blooms that it is difficult to choose which to talk about.

Over the years I have lived in Malaysia I have grown, or tried to grow, many beautiful plants and flowers which I know would be impossible in the UK, but here in Malaysia, WOW!

I had never taken much notice of gardening whilst I lived in the North East of England, my dad took care of much of that, but after living with my in-laws and seeing how easy it is to grow and look after flowers here, I started to show a bit more interest.  Almost everyone has a beautiful display of blooms in their gardens, at any time of year. My sister-in-law, Kathleen Wong, plants most of the flowers in our garden now as I am too busy, but I still continue to be amazed by the beauty and cannot resist taking close up photos.

Malaysia’s climate of hot seasons, humid seasons and heavy rain makes it perfect for many species of exotic plants and flowers to grow.  For instance, Bougainvillea, Money Plant, Passion Fruit Flower, Rain Tree Flowers and a whole lot more.  So, if you are a lover of flowers, or simply a tourist visiting Malaysia, be sure to take in the abundance of colours and shapes and scents as the stunning flora will only enhance your holiday!
